With the weather finally getting warmer and the days getting longer, it’s clear that spring is just about here (the official start date is tomorrow!). The new season brings with it new books — so many in fact that in can be hard to tell which ones are worth buying. Here are some upcoming titles for you to check out for your little ones.
There are a lot of steps in finding the right camp for your child. Doing it right will exhaust you and give you the best chance of finding the right spot for your child this summer… and for many others afterward.
With it being February, most of us want to stay inside until the warm weather is finally consistent. However, this can prove to move time much more slowly, creating a long and dull winter. That kind of environment is no good for you, not to mention your kids and the rest of the family. Especially in New York, there are always opportunities to help beat the winter blues.
The classroom isn’t the only place where kids can advance their minds and skills. As your child grows, you can spur them on in day-to-day activities and fresh experiences. No matter what stage of education your child is in, they can change for the better. You can take steps to build their love for learning, so they can have a well-rounded education.
No one looks forward to winter (and its seasonal breaks) quite like your kids. However, after the initial joy of that first snow wears off, boredom inevitably sets in.
Before kids can officially move into their new room and cover the floor with their toys, you’ll want to decorate. There’s bedding to think about, wall decorations and if you’re going to get new furniture. One thing that’s good to do first is picking out a paint color, since that’s what going to be the most obvious part of the room.
We all know that life during the holidays becomes even more hectic than usual. Between holiday parties, shopping for gifts, and decorating, it is a wonder that any of us can keep our heads on straight.
Most children by age 3 are able to label the various parts of the human body and describe their functions. Feet are used for walking, eyes are for seeing, mouths are for eating and talking, and so on. However, the concept of the brain and it’s utility is sometimes glossed over by parents and teachers because, frankly, it can be difficult to explain. But your child is never too young to be aware of the brain and the power it has.
Kids of any age (and plenty of adults!) struggle with boredom. A parent’s inclination is to suggest a fun activity or provide yet another distraction for children. But these boring moments are critical for your child’s social-emotional development.
Fall is an exciting time for parents and kids alike. Classes are well underway and fall activities and experiences have most of your attention and time! But before you get too caught up in the season, there’s a good chance you still need to do some school shopping.
